The Health Benefits of Playing Basketball

Maintaining a physically active lifestyle is one of the best ways to stay on track for your health and fitness goals. Here at Classic Turf Company, we work with many clients who are seeking more engaging means for exercising. Our various sport surfaces help property owners find healthier lives through their sport of choice.

One popular sports surface that we construct for many of our clients is basketball courts. Basketball is one of the most popular forms of exercise in the country, as the sport is fun to play (especially with friends) and it provides a tremendous workout.

Basketball is a great cardio workout because of all of the calories burned as a player runs and jumps around on the court. There are also plenty of stoppages of play during which a player will be able to cool down for a few seconds, keeping him from getting too tired too quickly. According to this article published by the Better Health Channel, a single hour of basketball can burn anywhere from 635 calories to 750 calories.

Playing a game of basketball provides a slew of other helpful health benefits to a person. Besides burning calories, running around will help an individual build superior physical endurance and even some muscle mass. In addition, playing basketball on a regular basis could improve your hand-eye coordination, your balance and concentration.

Classic Turf Company can offer you the highest quality basketball court that you can provide your home or recreational facility. We construct highly durable courts for basketball and other sports thanks to our post-tension concrete construction, which offers a longer service life than conventional concrete.
